Try to write in a friendly and informal manner. Keep a first-person narrative and relate to your life experiences. Remember that open-minded young people and their lives can be just as / more interesting than those belonging to a professional journalist! Think about your readers and what they can learn from your experience.
It's always better to write about what you know and admire. You can choose one topic of interest and develop it weekly, or write about something different - blogs on broad topics receive the best feedback.
6. PICK "KINDRED" TOPICS:
Reflections. What did you do / see / feel / experience this week? Readers respond especially well to personal stories with details, and photos generally do wonders!
Recommendations for articles, books, websites you have read and become interested in.
Recalling the projects you participated in, for example, in practical studies, school magazines, dramatic productions, etc. You can describe the project and its goals, as well as how it has helped you / your peers, what you have learned about the project, what the next steps will be and more.
Useful tips (life-hacks) applied in your daily life. For example: advice on food, mental health, relaxation techniques, inspired music, people, or places...
Drive the point home: Describe more, characterise less. For example, instead of saying what you thought was extraordinary, try explaining why you liked something and what you made of it.
Try to put questions to your reader and ask them to respond to what you have written (see managing comments).
Always be polite, respect other cultures and beliefs, and be informative.
Reports from where you stay. Explain to readers where you are by providing context through photos, descriptions, maps, landmarks, or videos.
